My three-year old son and I are both enormous fans of Mr. Rogers and own the first week of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood on DVD, as well as the Friendship/Love DVD and Circus Time DVD. All those DVDs are wonderful in that the single episodes hold together and don't leave a lot of unanswered questions (to be answered in a follow on episode).
I was hesitant to buy this DVD not only because it was a single 1/2 hour episode for ten dollars, but more because I was concerned it would not hold together conceptually because Mr. Rogers shows ran for half an hour a day for a full week to bring an idea or event to full fruition at the conclusion of a five-episode week. My fears were justified. About six (very interesting minutes) of this DVD is an overview of a crayon factory. The rest of the DVD is equal parts Mr. Rogers drawing with crayons at an easel, and time spent in the Neighborhood of Make Believe preparing for King Friday's art competition. Lady Elaine is certain she will win The Competition because she wants to. She goes so far as to say angrily "I HATE to lose, I hate it!" and "people like you when you win!" Miss Cow is uncertain how an art contest can even be judged, since art is subjective. Clearly the episode was setting the stage for teaching children about competition, losing, winning, and what art really is. And then just like that, the 30 minutes is over and none of those issues are explained or resolved.Read more ›

The first episode: Mister Roger's goes to school: Mister Rogers introduces children to a school bus driver, who takes them on a tour of the school bus. Then Mister Rogers goes for a ride to pick up school children. In the nieghborhood of make-believe, it's the first day of school at someplace else for Anna, Prince, and Daniel. They sing thier names, and talk aobut guitars. Parents of the children gather at the castle and await thier arrival and talk aobut missing them. I found it touching that Mister Rogers would include a little bit of emothional help for the parents, too.
On the television program, other episodes in this weeks theme included a trip to a kindergarten classroom, and a first grade classroom. I wish these were availble on DVD. Please contact Family Communications and join me in requesting more episodes on DVD.
The Second Episode: Learning: Mister Roger's talks about learning all different ways (caught rather than taught), and expiremnets with flashlights and battery operated toys. In the nieghborhood of make-believe the children at school vote to decide which is a better way to learn: field trips or a fancy learning machine.
My daughter likes this one and always wants to play with a flashlight after viewing it.
Also included is "How people make crayons." Fun and interesting.
